    I am extremely pleased at the quality of education my children have received at South Side Lower. Although the appearance of the campus is not inviting there are wonderful things going on inside this school. The staff is unbelievable. There is a 'can do' attitude. I could not be happier!

    This is a fine school with caring teachers. The principle is a very good leader and well respected. There is a need for an art program and more parental involvement.
